I am new to the industry and have no professional experience but I am willing to volunteer and I am a quick learner. I have written a few feature length scripts and I would like to ensure they are 100% polished before I begin to look for representation and start to pitch my idea. I need help in the polishing part so that's why I'm here. Any suggestions or help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
I am also willing to help out with any projects as needed. I did stage drama acting in high school and a small short 10 min film in College. I am not the greatest but can do a few voices for animation and I have a vast imagination to help any one with writing a script for any genre.
Yes, we are just resetting the schedule for a new course to start up at The Factory in a couple of weeks. It's a 10-week every Tuesday night course. I will let you know the dates or you can contact the Factory, there is a link on my page.
Hey Adriano, sorry it took me so long to respond, the only advice I can really recommend is to write as much as you can, practice makes perfect. Find your voice with writing to, what type of stories do you want to tell people, what's going to set yourself aside from the millions of other screenwriters. Never show your scripts to friends because they'll be nice and tell you what they think you want to hear. And never show anybody half finished work either.
For actual tips on proper format and such, I'd recommend reading Syd Field's "Screenplay". It's informative and he's got some great tips on how to properly structure a story for screenplay format. Other then that though, good luck with writing and feel free to send me anything you have! :)
hey man, yeah that was me that did the "Spare Change" short. Good to hear your interested in the club. If you wanna meet before the next meeting and chat some more, that would be great. If you wanna wait till the next meeting to talk more, all is well.
